About

360Mini - The World's First 360° Projector

The 360Mini is a 360 degree media projector that can display pictures, videos and animations.

With its easy-to-use operations, anyone who can push a button, can deploy and operate the 360Mini. Simply insert a memory card and switch on the device.

A built-in media PC can store photos and videos. You can play the content directly from the media PC or from an external USB-Stick / SD-card.

The 360Mini can be accessed via Wi-Fi, to edit and upload data.

By use of a cellphone or tablet, people can navigate through the uploaded content or control the 360Mini.

With the small, three feet high projector people can now watch 360 degree images and videos the same way they were shot: as a seamless 360° panorama.

Nowadays, 360° images and videos can be seen everywhere.
Hotels attract new visitors with images of panoramic landscapes, modern medicare would be unimaginable without 360° video endoscopy, facebook and youtube  just started recently to promote 360° content. 

The range of possible applications for the 360Mini is only limited by your own imagination.

About us:

We are a small team that has spent the last four years designing, prototyping and improving a portable 360 degree projector that can be used by everybody. The result is the 360Mini. We have built two prototypes, each with a different display, and both are working perfectly. 

In order to bring the 360Mini to a lot of people, we are looking for your support to start the production.

Who is the 360Mini for?

360Mini - Der Weltweit erste 360° Projektor

 Der 360Mini ist ein 360° Medienprojektor mit dem Bilder, Videos und Animationen angezeigt werden können. 

Er ist kinderleicht zu bedienen. Jeder der einen Knopf drücken kann, kann den 360Mini aufstellen und betreiben. Einfach nur Speicherkarte einführen, anschalten, fertig!

Ein eingebauter Medien-PC kann Fotos und Videos speichern. Die Inhalte können entweder direkt von der Festplatte oder von einem externen Speichermedium abgespielt werden. 

Der 360Mini verfügt über einen WLAN Zugang. Damit können Dateien bequem drahtlos hochgeladen und bearbeitet werden. Über ein Handy oder Tablet kann der Mini ferngesteuert werden.

Mit dem kleinen, knapp ein Meter hohen Projektor können Rundbilder und 360° Aufnahmen nun genau so wiedergegeben werden wie sie aufgenommen wurden. Rund.

Rundbilder und 360° Videos sind heute gar nicht mehr wegzudenken. Hotels werben mit tropischen Strandpanoramen, auch Facebook und Youtube nutzen mittlerweile 360° Content und die moderne Medizin wäre ohne 360° Videoendoskopie gar nicht mehr denkbar. Bislang beschäftigen sich momentan jedoch alle mit der Aufnahme von 360° Panoramen. Die Bandbreite möglicher Anwendungen für die Wiedergabe ist also beträchtlich.

Ein paar Worte über uns: 

Wir sind ein kleines Entwicklerteam, das sich in den letzten vier Jahren damit beschäftigt hat einen mobilen 360 Grad Projektor herzustellen, der von jedem Menschen bedient werden kann. Das Ergebnis ist der 360Mini. Wir haben jetzt schon zwei Prototypen hergestellt, jeweils mit unterschiedlichen Displays und beide funktionieren super. 

Um die Serienproduktion zu starten und den 360Mini allen Menschen zugänglich zu machen, brauchen wir Eure Unterstützung.

Für wen ist der Mini gedacht?

Risks and challenges

We have been working for over five years on 360 degree imaging technology and for three years on the 360Mini in particular.

We developed electronics, optics, and software with a team of dedicated experts. We know what the next steps towards series production are. Major components are produced inhouse. We have our suppliers and production partners ready to deliver all parts that we need in the required quality and quantity.We know that life is not always fully predictable and there are always potential risks for every Kickstarter campaign.

The main challenges are:

Manufacturing
The 360Mini requires specially designed machinery for serial production with their own workflows. We have considered this in our strategic planning and have experienced partners that help us get the 360Mini in the best quality and the right time to you.

Certifications
The CE cetrificate to bring our projector to European customers is already in stock. To sell the 360Mini in North America and other selected countries, we need to comply with FCC and other certifications This process is complex and can potentially require more time than expected.

With your help we can make it happen!
